Great job/work environment turns hostile with helicopter bosses
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 22, 2013
I worked at Hunter for 3.5 years and had a great run! Won several awards and competitions for 2.5 years, then got a new manager. He started calling every day, hovering, and micro-managing. Was told that this was the "new" Hunter, and saw evidence of this in all the new managers.
Huge commission checks are eaten up by taxes, expenses, insurance, and marketing! I made $100k+ in commission every year, and my tax return showed only $13k in taxable income... this was not a stretch. THIS IS A COMMISSION-ONLY JOB! YOU DON'T SELL, YOU DON'T EAT!
Don't buy the bull! This is a terrible company to work for! All salesmen in the territory have been or are getting fired! Look at all the job posts! There is EXTREMELY high turnover right now because they want to get rid of those who remember the way things were and hire young, hungry, and ignorant sales reps who don't know any better.
This place has gone to hell in a hand-basket. DO NOT ACCEPT A JOB OFFER!!! BE WARNED!!!
very decent commission, used to be a great place to work
commission-only pay, taxes, expenses, and insurance eat it all up!
